Chelsea was born at 29 weeks and suffered two bleeds on the brain - one grade 3 on the left and a grade 4 on the right. She was in nicu for 10 weeks and then finally she was home.
Chelsea wasn't feeding very well and we also noticed that she wasn't focusing or looking at us. Chelsea was then put on an Ng tube due to failure to thrive, she then started to miss milestones and also started having seizures, she was nearly a year old when it was confirmed Chelsea has 4 limb cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Chelsea is now 5 years old and we have had alot of hurdles along the way. She now suffers from severe chest infections and has home oxygen, she is now fed via a GJ tube into her tummy and doesn't have much control of her body. She also now has two dislocated hips and is fully dependent on a wheelchair and requires full time care.
Despite all of this Chelsea is very happy and always smiling with a very cheeky personality.
